It's by "alo" and it's moisture wicking which is perfect for running.
Retailing for $32, I got mine at Marshall's on clearance for $10.
And it's in one of my favorite colors! Check out the discount department stores for good buys on all kinds of running apparel. It doesn't have to cost a lot to look cute while you run!
I didn't get pictures of each stretch Meka showed me so I am linking to a website that will show you "Five Fantastic Stretching Exercises" from Debbie Pitchford, a physical therapist.
Stretching is important, says Pitchford, not only because it will make you a better runner, less likely to get injured, but it can also help you to maintain flexibility to do all the other activities in your life.
